What's New in the 2018 Volvo V90?

A less powerful T5 drivetrain joins the range, leading to a lower entry price. And a T6 AWD Volvo Ocean Race trim comes in at the top of the range.

Which V90 is the Best?

The middle-trim T6 AWD seems like the best choice. It has more standard equipment than the T5 and is eligible for a few options. Music lovers should give the Bowers & Wilkins audio system upgrade a listen.

Is the 2018 Volvo V90 a Safe Car?

Standard features include antilock disc brakes, traction/stability control, active front head restraints, hill-descent control and a full complement of airbags.

The V90 Cross Country hasn't been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). But we're not expecting safety to be a problem; this is a product of Volvo, a company that has made a name for itself by emphasizing the welfare of its customers and their surroundings.

There are plenty of advanced driver aids, such as adaptive cruise control with detection of pedestrians, cyclists and large animals, plus forward- and rear-collision mitigation, blind spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, run-off road mitigation and protection, lane-departure warning, road-sign recognition and a driver-drowsiness alert.

2018 Volvo V90 vs the competition

2018 Audi A4 Allroad -- The A4-based Allroad is another wagon with SUV leanings. Although it's technically a compact, it's spacious enough to encroach on midsize territory.

2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake -- Stylish, roomy, useful, luxurious and elegant. Comes with all-wheel drive as standard.

2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 4Matic wagon -- Not endowed with any kind of SUVlike tweaks apart from standard all-wheel drive, but it's luxurious, practical and spacious all the same. Has two extra seats in the cargo area.

Used Audi A6 Allroad -- If there's a club whose members all have wagons with SUVlike modifications, then there would be no shame in turning up with an A6 Allroad. Providing you can find one.
